Class 4 had an amazing time in London at the Sky Academy Studios. Here they were lucky enough to create their own movie trailer. They each had a different role to play: actor, editor, producer, director, sound engineer and cinematographer. They were even able to add in their own special effects and use a green screen!
During their first few weeks at school, the children in Reception have been having lots of fun exploring and playing with the resources in our classroom and outdoor area.

A motte and bailey castle, often spelt as motte-and-bailey, is old type of castle and one of the first castles to be built in England. The castle is made up of two parts: The motte is a raised mound of earth which has a wooden or stone building on it, often referred to as a keep. The bailey is an enclosed courtyard that is surrounded by walls and a ditch and palisade — which is a wooden stake fence.

Class 4 are very lucky to have Mrs Pearson take them out during the Spring Term to do Forest School. Come and see what they have been up to!
Class 4 were challenged to design and make a playground out of K*nex. They had to ensure it was accessible to all ages and abilities. I have never seen such a variety of designs and level of creativity! Mo from STEMworks was very impressed!
Class 4 had a fantastic day with Mo from STEMworks. She taught them not only how to make their own robot from Lego, but also how to program it to perform different tasks - which they then were scored on. The children had to make their robot dance (with lights and sound effects) score a goal and park itself in a very small space! Class 4 very amazing and learnt some invaluable teambuilding and programming skills. Well done to our winning group: Maisie and Sam!
We have been learning all about food - types of food, food groups, where it comes from and food miles, and doing lots of tasting!
